Stakeholders have called on Federal Government to immediately review the country’s drug law policy, so as to be in line with current realities and international best practices.

Speaking at the opening of a two-day programme in Abuja, yesterday, Project Team Coordinator, YouthRise Nigeria, Adeolu Ogunrombi, organisers of the event, said young people constitute about 60 percent of Nigeria’s population, explaining that in 2011, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in its world drug report stated that Nigeria topped estimated illicit drug use in African countries.

Ogunrombi said the report showed that Nigeria’s drug policy has been a reactive one to both internal and external pressures, instead of being a proactive tool based on evidence of what works and what doesn’t.
